Attempted to show Spring waking a bit too early into the middle of winter... "attempted" being the key word. Used mainly Copic and steadler fineliners, some prismacolor pencils and a white Faber castell pitt pen and gel pen for snow/highlights on canson marker paper (which was so incredibly streaky!!! Stick with smooth bristol people! Trust me.) Anyhoo, good luck everyone!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

It's amazing you did so well considering the paper (aw she's got red scratchy eyes)! It's a wonderful piece, but I wonder if the pink outline of her hair/leaf was a bit much visually, maybe not, but it's certainly a striking pose. The color shadings are amazing, but lacks a certain sense of depth (barely). I'm being completely anal of course, just trying to figure out why the current score is so low :( Maybe some finer detail to the background would've set the subject off better?

Thanks for the kind critique! There were just so many things that went wrong on this piece... mostly because I messed up my original entry and had to scramble at the last minute. The colors , including the line, really needed to be thought out a lot more. You're right about it needing more contrast and depth and darker linework, and probably more varied line weight as well. However, I really like the design and might try again when I have more time :) As for the low score, no worries! It's been a recent trend for Draw With Jazza cotm entries to have lower scores. The more people that enter the "better" your work has to be to get high scores! Thanks again for the help! It's nice to have a better idea of what can be improved!
